executive committee tbat is at present
circulating subscription papers for funds
for a fair or bazar to be given by tbe
Rock Island Turner society, Nov. 28 and
the gentlemen are meeting with much en
couragrment on every band and many
exceedingly liberal responses.
Copies of the following circular bave
been sent out bearing on tbe same sub
j;ct: To tbe Bnainesa Ilea and Merchants of the City
of Mock laiand.
In appearing before you and the Rock
Island public generally for tbe first time
with tbe request to assist us to carry out
the ideas and purpose of our society, we
desire to lsy before you tbe real objects
and tendencies of tbe organization known
as tbe North American Turner Bund. It
may be expressed in these few words:
"Cultivation of tbe body and mind of the
young, so as to make them fit, worthy
and useful members ot society, and to
prepare them for tbeir important duties
and responsibilities as American citi
zens." Tbe aim of this 'organization,
which has spread its branches all over
this great country is one certainly worthy
of appreciation and entitled to the sup
port of all classes.
Tbe Rock Island Turn-Oemeine, a
branch of tbia organization, has been in
existence a great number of years and
has always endeavored to do its share in
this direction, and in its gymnasium and
hall bave often been exhibited pleasing
results of the noble work. It has, as it is
proud to say, succeeded beyond expecta
tion. As a society, as well as through its
members individually, it has cheerfully
contributed to Rock Island's develop
ment, growth and prosperity, but with
the advancing years the requirements
have increased and now tbe society sees
itself confronted with the necessity either
to increase its facilities considerably by
enlarging its gymnasium, apparatus
and teaching department, or to great
ly reduce its usefulness and tfflca
ry. In tbe spirit of improvement,
which seems to bave seized upon
our city, the Rock Island Turner
Society desires to adhere to its principles
of progress and usefulness, and to do this
more effectively has concluded en'are
tbe gymnasium and lecture room. Placed
in a similar position several years ago a
large debt bad to bt contracted, which,
although greatly reduced, is not yet en
tirely psid off, and tbe managers do not
feel warranted to involve tbe society in
new snd larger obligations before the ex
isting debt is paid off. In order to C
cnmplish this they bave concluded to
arrange for a fair or bazar on a large and
extended scale. Believing tbat tbe sal
utary results of its work and efforts bene
fits the community at large and reaches all
classes through tbe various channels of
life and common intercourse, tbe R"xk
Is'and Turner society now sppeala to that
spirit of generosity of tbe business men
and merchants of our city which has so
often heretofore manifested itself on
divers occasions, and is confident in so
doiug, it will secure tbe hearty coopera
tion of all.

Maj. Mackenzie estimates tbat a little
over halt a million dollars has been spent
under bis jurisdiction the past summer
and be is very well satisfied with what
has been accomplished. There is not
much of a fund left to begin operations
in tbe spring though, and unless congress
makes its appropriations early work will
be delayed next season. Tbe Mississippi
improvement is one of tbe most impor
tant appropriations that comes before
the river and harbor committee and it
should always be liberally dealt with.

Not long ago a young man who had a
touch of heart disease entered the office of a
Boston dentist. The joung man bad a bad
attack of toothache also, and in his anxiety
to get rid of tbe offending tooth forgot to in
form the dentist that he wished to take tbe
ether slowly and cautiously. Consequently,
ust as be was about to succumb to tbe in
fluences of the gas be remembered his omis
sion and raised his hand to remove the tube
from his mouth. But the ether was a little
quicker than be, and bis arm fell powerless

and a roaring in bis ears. He felt, or imag

bis heart. Then be felt nothing more. But

the space of what seemed to him to be eeveral

whether be waa alive or dead. A million
thoughts of reminiscence, wonder, anticipa

Lore has its troubles among; all clans, and
even tbe impassible Mongolian finds that its
course does not run smoothly. The anti
Chinese law is keeping fond hearts in China
away from fond hearts in New York, and
promises to make tbe Chinese colony per
manent one and to provide it with American
wires. This is the way of it: Five years aaro
a boy of 14 was betrothed to a girl of 13, and
then the little pig tailed bid set sail for San
Francisco with his father to make bis fortune
and return for his bride. In vain tbe lan
guishing Lo Fee bas written to bim to return.
Ah Chung knows that if be goes back to
China he cannot come bark here, and his
"boodle'' is yet too small to keep a wife la
Finally the bride got angry and wrote to
her uncle to make it hot for Ah Chung, which
be proceeded to do vertwily. But the latter
young man is not easily scared, and coolly
told tbe uncle tbat bis betrothed bad better
suit herself with a husband at home, aa on tbe
whole be thought American girls prettier
than Mongolians, and intended to snarry and
settle down In tbe United States.
The fact is that Chinamen who have visited
their old home and returned bave brought
such terrible accounts of the dullness of
poverty stricken life in China tbat the wide
